BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (PRWEB) September 20, 2012
Regions Bank (NYSE: RF) today announced that Ian MacDonald, Mortgage Originator in Jacksonville, Fla., is the September 2012 recipient of the Regions Bank Better Life Award. The Better Life Award is the top honor given to an associate of Regions for outstanding dedication and job performance, as well as exemplary involvement and commitment to the community.
MacDonald has a passion for helping people, whether their financial dream is developing a business or buying a home. His key to success is simple: to get to know people and understand how he can best help them. And his commitment to doing that and to ensuring that people’s lives are improved in the end, makes him an outstanding role model.
“Ian is simply an exceptional person, who is also a banker,” said Logan Pichel, head of Regions Mortgage. “His commitment is not something you learn; it’s part of what forms someone’s character. And we are fortunate to have him on our team.”
MacDonald’s experience as a classroom teacher also influences his involvement in the Jacksonville community. As a board member on the St. John’s County Education Foundation, MacDonald brings both real-world experience and a similar desire to make a difference to things as diverse as supply drives, special needs programs and much more.
The Better Life Award is presented monthly to a Regions associate who lives the company’s mission to make life better for customers, associates and the communities it serves, and who is an example of the company’s values:
Regions associates are nominated by their managers and peers for the award. Regions President and Chief Executive Officer Grayson Hall honors recipients at the company’s headquarters in Birmingham, Ala., at a meeting broadcast live to offices and branches in the 16 states Regions serves. In addition to the recognition, associates earning the Better Life Award will receive an additional week of vacation and a crystal award.
